The Power Play is based upon deception, but its execution is based upon blast football. This is old smash mouth football, and the birth of the power play goes back to the 1890s, and I’m sure that Shy Huntington of Oregon used a variation in the Rose Bowl nearly a hundred years ago.
We use a version adapted by Chip for the Spread, and it is lethal as we have made a TON of yards from this one play. It is the third most used running play in the Oregon Spread Offense after the Inside and Outside Zone Read, thus it makes sense to appreciate how it works. Enjoy the video below!
Go to the OREGON FOOTBALL ANALYSIS LIBRARY by FishDuck.com front page to find the articles and links here.
Articles about the Oregon Spread Offense under coaches Chip Kelly, Mark Helfrich, Scott Frost, Mario Cristobal, Marcus Arroyo and Willie Taggart are present along with plays and tactics.
